Mike Newman

A candidate for State Representative Pos. 1, Legislative District 40 in the 2010 Washington General Election

Party: Republican

On this race:

Elected Experience: I have never held public office

Other Professional Experience: Boeing Employee, Realtor

Education: Sehome High School, WSU

Community Service: Little League Coach, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Volunteer, volunteer with WDFW on many projects, Volunteer for USRDA Self Help Program as a carpenter, Volunteer on Skagit Backyard Habitat Team.

Statement: Mike is a family oriented lifetime Washingtonian, concerned that his children and grand children will not have the same opportunities that he had.  As a former Boeing employee, Mike knows that we must keep these good jobs in Washington, and that it is taxation and over regulation that is driving them away.  We must return to priority budgeting that directs funding to only the most important programs.  We must also stop the drain on our budget caused when we award taxpayer supported benefits to illegal aliens.  Mike is not a politician.
